“Leaving to come back better”. Nicolas Regny keeps repeating it. The sub-prefect signed this 12 October the European and international mobility charter for young Lotois, alongside Dasen Xavier Papillon. “Even if the Lot is an endearing region, it is important to take a tour elsewhere and especially abroad. The younger generations must be able to discover other cultures”.

“The priority is to inform”, assures the director of the local mission Ahmed Taha, one of the project leaders. “Each year, around thirty young people are directed towards international mobility. It is an integration accelerator: when they come home, they are often more in a job search dynamic. In 6 to 12 months, we have seen young people change completely. “

Several accessible devices

If Erasmus was obviously mentioned, it is not the only system available for young people who wish to leave. A collective of local actors has been created in the Lot in order to promote them and strengthen the network of partners. “We have three challenges: learning to work together to have a culture of mobility, carrying out actions to raise the awareness of elected officials – mobility is often a source of attractiveness for the territory -, developing the network”, explains Pascal Gueneau, director of the MJC of Gourdon.

Many other associations and administrations were present. Starting with the municipality of Salviac which intends to participate in the organization of exchanges with Romania and certainly Germany. Lot pour Toit, the Departmental Federation of Rural Homes, Francas du Lot, Animapole, IUT of Figeac, Grand Cahors and Grand Figeac, the Canopé network and Arts, Scenes and Co. were also part of the partners.
